Apple & Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake starts with a box mix, but with the addition of sour cream, pecans and fresh apples, it takes an ordinary muffin mix and transforms it into an amazing coffee cake! A moist cinnamon batter studded with tart apples and toasted pecans makes for simply irresistible breakfast everyone will love.
Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake has been one of our family’s favorite breakfast treats for as long as I can remember. Unlike my family who would happily eat the same favorite meals forever, I get easily bored always making the same thing time after time. I decided to try a new fall spin on coffee cake made from a box mix when I ran across Cinnamon Streusel box mix in the store. I thought it would pair perfectly with our abundant harvest of tart apples and rich pecans.
Thank goodness for another great apple season and the bushel basket we have in the garage of nice tart apples we continue to enjoy. The winds have been pretty brutal a few days over the last couple weeks and have blown a good amount of the apples off the tree and on to the ground for the dog to enjoy. We have salvaged the rest for our own delicious apple treats though!
